Some good bargain hunting and fast food at where Reno meets Sparks.
No, you don’t have to be odd to come to Oddie Blvd, although it might help. Off this exit are some good cheap finds.
On the left at Silverado, you will find deals on both sides of you.
First is Sak-N-Save with a vast amounts of bulk items, a little bit of merchandize and camping supplies, and lots of beer and booze. Next down Oddie you’ll find Lowes Home Improvement, a fantastic place to get hardware, building, and some camping supplies. In this shopping center you will also find a Goodwill and Savers thrift stores for possible costume-ideas, and CVS/Pharmacy.
Further down Oddie on the right is a Super K-Mart, and a little further, at Rock Blvd, turn right and you will find the sisters-owned Fresca Waterhouse.
